    What countries in the Middle East expect women to cover up?

    Only in Saudi Arabia women should cover up but as far as I know its not compulsory to cover up in any other country. However a women traveler to the Middle East should wear modestly as a kind of respect to the norms prevailing in the country she is visiting. http://www.egyptholidaysdirectory.com about 9 years ago

    7 Recommendations for a week end at Cairo 1. Having a day tour to the Giza Pyramids and Memphis and Sakkara 2. Horse back riding or Camel trekking in the desert with a panoramic view of the Giza Pyramids will add fund to your visit 3. Dedicate a day tour to the Egyptian Antiquities Museum specially the treasures of King Boy Tut Ankhamun on its display then you can visit the Citadel of Salah El Din and then you can go shopping to Khan EL- Khalili where you can buy souvenirs of all kinds.

    Isn't there anything more recent on the safety of visiting Cairo?

    Overall Cairo is safe but try avoiding Tahrir square and Moustafa Mahmoud square in Mohandeseen although traffic is normal in these places but every now and then some clashes take place between the revolutionaries and the thugs. However all the sightseeing in Cairo are open for tourists. You can stay in hotels in Pyramids area which is very calm and away from all disturbances over 9 years ago

    Is it safe to travel to hurghada, im thinking about booking over the easter holidays. Are there many tourists now?Many Thanks

    As most countries has dropped the travel ban to Egypt therefore tourism is resuming slowely but in Red Sea resorts the tourist numbers are quiet good and the occupancy rate is expected to reach more than 85 percent during Easter. As this region was away from all the troubles as Zaida said. http://www.egyptholidaysdirectory.com over 9 years ago

    Are there neighborhoods in Cairo that may be safer to stay in than others given the recent events?

    UK prime minister has visited Down Town Cairo yesterday February 22nd where it witnessed the revolution and he was walking freely from Ramsis street till Tahrir square and greeting people in the streets. Cairo is now becoming more safe in most parts if you would like recommendations of quiet districts you might consider Pyramids area, Maadi and Zamalek. That is not to say that Down Town (Tahrir area) is not safe but still you might find protestors raising their demands. almost 10 years ago

    My partner and i are booked to go to Luxor at the start of March. What should we do?

    Luxor is a long way from Cairo where the protests are and what you can do is wait for the couple of days if you see that the situation is escalating then I advise you cancel your trip however if things calm down and the demonestration is over then you can go ahead and go to Luxor. By the way I have asked some foreigners who are now in Luxor and they all assured that the tourists are there and many insisted on continuing their trip as they did see nothing that would cause them to leave. almost 10 years ago
